CLICK BELOW TO REDISCOVER HUMANITY

Spider Webs

Fragile, sturdy, delicate strands

Thinner than dental floss,

Astonish.

Seemingly invulnerable to rain or wind,

These creations-

The ones right outside the door-

Remain utterly untouched.

Intricate in their mandala weave-like way,

Waiting,

Gentle nets to capture nourishment,

Works of art by tiny creatures

Whose lives can quickly be extinguished

By unaware human beings

Caught in mental tangles of angst.

Can we pause?

Pay rapt attention?

What are we creating

That’s tender, resilient

Precious, life-giving,

Impermanent to

Our own existence?

  1. Goodness me, Laura, you spun a web that ignited my senses. Such beautiful verse. I just love it. I will read it time and time again.
    Simply beautiful and beautiful in its simplicity; but not simplicity of meaning, for it goes to unprecedented depths of consciousness.
    Thank you, Laura.

    • Thank you so much for all your kind thoughts, Simon! Sometimes poetry reveals all kinds of layers and meanings. What I know is that this one did indeed come from the depths of me. I’m grateful to know you appreciated the beauty and layers. I appreciate you very much, my friend.
